Today’s Devotion: “Day 13- Heirs Of Salvation-- Hebrews 1: 13-14 ‘But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?’
Romans 8: 16-17 ‘The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God. And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.’
When we entered into covenant relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ we became partakers of His glorious inheritance. As heirs everything He has belongs to us & we have access to it at any time. This is so powerful at work in His saints that He will dispatch angels to go ahead of us & prepare the way for his purposes to be fulfilled in his saints. I believe that at our command we can release an angelic host over cities or nations to prepare atmospheres for the presence of the Lord. Principalities & powers are already submissive to the Lord because of His victory over them at Calvary. So if there are some changes that need to take place or doors that have been closed that need to be opened for you, remember you’re an heir of God so release this angelic host by your decree & see the Salvation of God.”
Powerful words, especially when you find yourself feeling out of control and at the end of your rope. All you have to do is ask. Though I think it’s also important to spend time focusing on the blessings you’ve already been given, and thanking Him for those, lest we end up being unappreciative. So many times we only find the time to pray when we need something. I try to make sure to find time to just spend time thanking him for having a job I love, having a great family and friends, an awesome husband, paid off debts, surviving the first season of The Scoop…
Today was a nice day—we got to sleep in a little bit, I finished reading two books that I’ve been working on for a while. Then I helped the Hubs bottle up his homebrew that he started 3 weeks ago:
48 bottles of American bock. Can’t wait to try it!
Aaaaand after that… we were pretty lazy. And it was AWESOME.
Breakfast: Leftover veggie minestrone
Lunch: a small serving of leftover salsa rice, and then some yummy homemade bruschetta with Triscuits!
- 1 Roma tomato, diced
- 1/4 cup minced red onion
- 1/2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 tsp minced basil
- 1 tsp minced oregano
- salt & pepper to taste
Mix all of the components together, and let rest for 30 minutes or overnight so the flavors can come together, Then serve!
Dinner: Again…this is a CAJUN food blog… and we’re still tired of beans. So, I decided to have a SHRIMP BOIL!!! …without the shrimp.
Yup, a dinner of just the sides. YUM.
- 3-4 large red potatoes, halved or quartered
- 8 oz white mushrooms
- 4 ears corn, halved
- 1 onion, quartered
- 4-6 garlic cloves, halved
- 1 lemon, quartered
- 1 bag Crab Boil
- 1 tbsp Liquid Crab Boil
- 1 tsp cayenne (optional – you can add more or less to your taste)
- Cajun Seasoning
Fill a large pot with about 3 quarts of water, place over High heat, and add both of the crab boils, garlic, lemons, and onions. When the water starts to simmer, add the corn & potatoes & cook for about 15-20 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Add the mushrooms when you have about 5 minutes of cook time left.
Serve up on newspaper, and sprinkle with Cajun seasoning. Dig in! (and wash your hands after you finish eating—lest you end up with capsaicin in your eye.)
